finding Mirrors and windows
Education experts agree that when it comes to children's books, it's important that young readers have access to both "windows" and "mirrors." Windows are stories that help the reader understand the wider world. Mirrors are stories that reflect children's own experiences, where children can find themselves, their families, and their communities reflected and valued. The Buffett Institute has compiled a resource to help parents and educators find these books.
